Jaime Lannister plot: What will happen to Jaime Lannister in season 8?

Season eight will see Jaime Lannister’s (played by Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) character arc coming to an epic close having truly transformed over the course of the HBO series. Jaime started off as an out-and-out villain after he threw Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead-Wright) from the window of Winterfell’s Broken Tower in season one, episode one of Game of Thrones. Only moments earlier, Bran had witnessed Jaime having unlawful and incestuous sex with his sister Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey), who was married to King Robert Baratheon (Mark Addy).

Although Jaime was seen as a baddie, who had earned the moniker the Kingslayer after murdering the Mad King, Aerys Targaryen (David Rintoul), we started to learn more about the dishonourable knight and our perception of him began to change.

Jaime’s friendship with Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie) began to turn the tide in his favour as well after he got his hand lopped off by Locke (Noah Taylor) for preventing the lady from the Sapphire Isle from getting raped.

He also saved Brienne from the bear pit, where she would most certainly have met a gruesome end at the hands of the enormous and enraged beast with only a wooden sword for protection.

As the show continued, he and Cerise’s relationship grew more fractious after he returned to King’s Landing with only one hand, which disgusted her.


He also raped her in a controversial moment following the death of their son Joffrey Baratheon (Jack Gleeson).

In season six, Jaime and Cersei saw the death of all their children with Tommen (Dean Charles Chapman) committing suicide and Marcella (Nell Tiger-Free) getting murdered in a Sand snakes’ plot.

Season seven saw Jaime becoming more distanced from Cersei after she refused to help fight the Night King (Vladimir Furdik) and the White Walkers.

Jaime was last seen riding North and leaving Cersei behind, suggesting he was severing his connections to her once and for all.


What will happen to Jaime Lannister in Game of Thrones 8?

Season eight will see Jaime fighting alongside Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) as they take on the army of the dead.

He will also have to deal with the repercussions of betraying Cersei, who is going to be left incandescent with rage after finding out he’s defied her.

Jaime’s journey North will also see him reuniting with his brother Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage), who is serving as the Hand of the Queen to Daenerys.

One of the most anticipated moments is season eight is Jaime’s reunion with Bran, who have not seen each other since the fateful night the knight tried to kill the young Stark.


Will Jaime Lannister kill Cersei Lannister in Game of Thrones season 8?

Plot details are understandably being kept under wraps but he could kill Cersei – but the circumstances around this are uncertain.

There have been some fan theories suggesting Jaime could be the legendary warrior Azor Ahai reborn, who ended the Long Night and the rule of the White Walkers by plunging a sword into the heart of his beloved wife Nissa Nissa.

In order to fulfil the prophecy, Jaime would have to kill Cersei by stabbing her through the heart. But the geographical distance between Jaime in the North and Cersei in the South in King’s Landing could mean this theory would not work.


Will Jaime be the last Lannister in Game of Thrones?

Depending on the body count at the end of Game of Thrones, Jaime could become the last Lannister.

Tyrion and Cersei are both still alive, which means he may not become the last of his line.

Saying this, there have been many theories Cersei is going to be meeting her maker at the end of the series.

The end of House Lannister would form a nice cyclical arc given their involvement in the Red Wedding, where the ominous Rains of Castamere was played shortly before the massacre.

The Reynes were a proud family who was obliterated by the Lannisters out of defiance and a refusal to repay gold they owed and the song is used a form of intimidation. But the Lannister themselves could be at an end when Game of Thrones wraps up.

Game of Thrones season 8 premieres on HBO in the USA on April 14 and on Sky Atlantic and NOW TV in the UK on Monday, April 15.
